S. Egidio del Monte Albino – Nature

S. Egidio del Monte Albino shows a typical vegetation of a centre situated at the bottom of a mountain with at the back a mountain which nearly reaches 900 metres on sea level.

Chestnut woods are mixed with live-oak woods and with little spaces with terraced gardens in the lower part of the mountain.

Numerous paths well signed allow to come into contact with this nature that in autumn offers wood products, from chestnuts to mushrooms, to the visitor. Along the streets of the village instead gardens, not terraced anymore but near always a ripa, allow cultivation of citrus trees and particularly of oranges, whose fruits, after being cropped up, are preserved for a long time in grottos or in “revote” (deposits) which there are in the same gardens.
